In June we share an online exhibition as part of the Auckland Festival of Photography – featuring our communities inspiring photographs of paddling.

Images are of any aspect of paddling, including but not limited to:
– images that share the exciting, action-packed and educational side of sea kayaking
– pictures of our backyard’s friendly marine wildlife
– beautiful landscapes captured from the ocean
– heartening photographs of Auckland’s Waitemata harbour, meaning ‘sparkling waters’
